That's one less patrol car for us.

One of our guys was working a late night, tractor trailer interstate crash the other night. He was sitting in his car and was about to clear the scene. Instead, he hopped out to show his new flashlight to a cop from a neighboring agency. He walked a short distance away when a driver failed to notice the emergency lights from a number of police cars on the scene. Then this...




Nobody on the scene was hurt. The distracted driver hit the patrol car so hard he flipped his car. Surprisingly, he wasn't injured. Even more surprisingly, the driver was sober, licensed and insured. I would have lost a lot of money on that bet.

Did he finish his text? Isn't that really all that matters today?

Yeah, at night. And there were a number of emergency vehicles on scene, because it was a crash involving two tractor trailers partially blocking an interstate lane. Lots and lots of flashing lights.

One of our officers lost control of his Malibu (seemed to be happening a lot, something about a Vette drivetrain in what's effectviely a Cruze)
Ended up on the sidewalk with a stop sign embedded in the hood.

It was parked in the service bay for a few weeks during the IA investigation.

During that time, another one, with similar damage, showed up next to it.
I asked the chief mechanic if the 2nd one was in to have the stop sign installed.
He wasn't amused.

They only had those Malibus for a couple of years before they went to the Explorers.

They still wad them up on a regular basis :facepalm:
I get to furnish the traffic camera video to IA.

Jeez, ain’t it already dangerous enough without Oscar Grope out there NOT NOTICING that there’s a wreck?

Why am I not surprised?

Glad nobody was hurt but, JEEZ!
